DESCRIPTION
The rise of punk rock in the 1970s provoked an explosion of collage-based visual art. A new generation of rebels reworked dada aesthetics in the design of flyers, zines and studio art. Some of the most interesting work was done by the musicians themselves. The bridge that formed between music and visual art inaugurated a hybridity now common in studio practice where art history shares equal space with movies, music and television as source material for artists. This show will revisit that time, focusing exclusively on the west coast, and take pleasure in the diversity of approaches and styles. There will be work in the show by artists who are better known as musicians, and by musicians who are better known as artists. We will replay the moment when artists circled back to an earlier aesthetic only to open a futuristic mindset.
